Welcome to the e-discussion forum for Nutrition & Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs). This is a virtual space dedicated to sharing ideas, knowledge and experience on how to make nutrition considerations more central to NCD action on the ground.
Of special concern is the double burden of malnutrition in low- and middle-income countries. We hope this e-discussion forum can contribute to building programming and policy development capacities of various groups of stakeholders in these countries and globally.
Through this e-discussion forum it is envisaged that we will collectively move forward after the UN High-Level Meeting on the prevention and control of NCDs (New York, September 2011) in order to raise awareness on the linkages between undernutrition and obesity and diet-related chronic diseases, and help suggest ways in which stakeholders can translate policy and political commitments into real action at country-level.
Login to the group and join the discussion. We would like to thank you in advance for helping to establish a dynamic e-community which will effectively contribute to raise awareness on nutrition and NCDs and we look forward to a constructive discussion.
